Pricing Structure and Available Options
These pedals will be available in two different formats with different prices for each format
Two Pedal Set – Throttle and Brake - $319

Three Pedal Set – Throttle, Brake, and Clutch - $379

Each set of pedals will include all the necessary hardware needed to make adjustments to each pedal. An extra hard brake bushing will also be included for those that want a much harder brake feeling. ProtoSimTech will also be including instructional videos filled with information on how to make adjustments to your pedals, and how to properly care for them.

Release Date

This pedal set will be available for pre-order this fall. No official release date has been set. Be sure to check out www.protosimtech.com for information regarding an official release date. The official release date will be posted on the website when one has been determined.

(We are shooting for October)



Pre-Ordering

Pre-Orders will be limited to a total of 20 complete pedal sets, and they will be first come, first serve. This limit is to help ensure that we are able to build all 20 complete sets within a reasonable time frame. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Pre-orders will only be open for a short period of time (TBA). Once the orders have hit the 20 set mark, no more ordering will be possible.

After all 20 pedal sets have been built, tested and then shipped, we will open up our ordering process for another batch of 20 pedal sets. Check out our website at www.protosimtech.com for information on why we are building them in batches of 20.

Lead Times

Lead times will be approximately 8-10 weeks. While this may seem like an unusually long period of time, we are a small operation, and we would like to ensure that each pedal set matches the quality that you expect out of a sim racing product. Over time, these lead times will grow shorter.

Closing Statement

ProtoSimTech was started in May of 2012. It originally began as a quest to build a set of pedals that could be tailored to any driving style. Along the way, it quickly became apparent that this venture was more than just a passing interest, and ProtoSimTech was born.

Christopher Smith, Co-Founder of ProtoSimTech, has been hard at work designing, building, testing, and making critical changes to their first sim racing product, for the past two years. Recently, in October of 2013, Chris put together a series of videos documenting the entire process on YouTube. You can head over to ProtoSimTech's YouTube channel and check it out:

These come in at a great price point IMHO. I have a T500 but really wanted a load cell brake, could never luck into a Bodin add-on for them so I opted to replace my pedals with Fanatec CSP v2's. Admittedly, I wanted to avoid Fanatec due to some horror stories. Alas, I bit the bullet and they've been ok, I've had 3 issues and luckily I had the forethought to order extra load cells when I purchased just in case I have an issue with that as well.

If these are comparible in qualtiy, and I suspect they may be better than CSP's, they may very well be an option for me in the future. I am not likely to invest $750-$1000 in my pedals and I like the fact that you are local to me. I feel I get lost in the fog when emailing Fanatec.
I wish you the best.

I really appreciate the kind words. We don't caompare our pedals to the CSP's even though a lot of people out there seem to be. Ours are really in a different catagory. That's not to say that ours are any better or any worse. They are just different. 

We discussed our prices internally for months. We came to the conclusion that if we didn't offer a price tag that was under $400, we wouldn't be able to sell them. People really just want a quality product at a decent price. We're trying to give them that smile

Oh yum. I was looking at buying new pedals, first i looked at the fanatec clubsports. But these PT-1's is just about the same price and with all that customization they do look very very interesting! My only concern is shipping price to Sweden smile

I wish that I had a definitive answer for you with regards to shipping costs to any specific country. Unfortunately, shipping costs are always going to be more expensive for overseas. However, we are going to do our very best to give you as fair a price as we possibly can. 

We'll keep you updated on these things as we get closer to the pre-order date. Until then, keep checking our website. We will be posting answers to these questions on our FAQ's page as soon as we have them. 

Thank you for the compliments! 

Chris

I am following the process from the beginning and really like the final result! The Simracers must support small companies or 1 guy ventures! Personal contact and discussing the product with his creator is great option here.;) I am waiting the Shaun`s review of this pedals.

Hey Shaun:

I was hoping to participate in the next race and on Simracing System it says it's at Fuji. Which version of Fuji should I download.

Thanks!

Sean,
I am all signed up and ready to race in the Carrera Cup, except for one thing.  How do I obtain Road America?  I do not have it in AC as one of my tracks.  Where is it?

Great review, you've convinced me to buy one of these for my rigsmile

One question, do you think the mounting brackets could be inverted (and swapped left to right) to mount it from the top?

Hey man. Love your style and input on all your reviews. I have a question: my rig is fo the ps4, it has the thrustmaster t300 Alcántara edition, the fanatec clubsport v3 pedals, the cpx adapter from Basherboards, and I am looking forward to get this fanate shifter. You said that I could connect this shifter directly to the pedals via a USB cable. My question is: is that setup only for pc or will it work with the setup I provided above? 

Thanks very much for your answer. I wouldn't wanna have to conform with the th8 because a misunderstanding of compatibility, and missing out on the fanatec Choice. 

Thanks a bunch!
